  1. You really are a little naive oinlinki aren't you. When did lots of money have anything to do with who you like 70 years ago--- Google passports sold --you dont even have to go to the dark web (although there is plenty more being offered there ) EU passport: Agencies with links to Russian mafia offer back-door route to millions--http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2854525/Not-Romanian-No-problem-s-EU-passport-Agencies-links-Russian-mafia-offer-door-route-millions.html Yes I do know a little of the history of Finland---you fought alongside or with great support from the Nazis against Russia from 1941--1944 then change sides.....I am sure you feel well at home in Thailand. The Finland Continuation War of 1941–1944 (with considerable support from Nazi Germany )resulting in a swift invasion of neighboring areas of the Soviet Union), eventually leading to the loss of Finland's only ice-free winter harbour Petsamo. The Continuation War was, in accordance with the armistice conditions, immediately followed by the Lapland War of 1944–1945, when Finland fought the Germans --Wikipedia
  2. They dont have to think to hard about it animalmagic ---you either do not live in the UK or are out of touch with what's going on there---re the immigration.....the Russians flood in , as many newspapers have pointed out--(& had their reporters do) its so easy to buy a passport from their friends in Lithuania Latvia Estonia Finland Slovenia. Czech Republic & God help us when other EU members like Romania Croatia Bulgaria that are due very soon for Schengen area membership Yes do enjoy your freedoms..............most of the above countries who were part of the USSR will be there to share them with you.....hopefully we wont.....
  3. Federica ---the more people like that talk---- The more leaving makes you certain its the right thing to do....... Just done a round of the UK papers---the amount that start their letter off with----I have voted Labour all my life, but.....
  4. There always seems to be problems with some land offices----(although there should not be) much like immigration you can point to different things written in the law---but they just seem to be a law unto themselves --- I had a friend who was refused one in Ban Nok......the guy just said ...oh no I don't like that idea---he had a lady lawyer with him who pointed out it was fully legal...but .he just kept saying....Oh I don't like that idea....no. Some of these offices are like they are in the realms of fantasy-----. The lawyer said well we can take it to state office then after that we take to BKK----to which my friend just said, cancel the sale.
  5. Yes 100% right Mbaki but you get that brainless comment on every little bit of negative news that appears----more of a reflection on the poster I think --shoot some old man on Face book, so all can see--- its doesn't seem to be Americaness ...........
  6. Oh someone saw the driver...and he was Thai-??-----Yer those Thai's.....only place in the world where you ever get a hit and run----- they even kill people on Face Book for giggle ............Oh sorry have I got the wrong race.....was that pure Westeness at its best..........
  7. Wow that's quite a shift from the I.phone edgarfriendly. ---------------------- Yer I think that is correct Andrew for Theft----most people would not steal , but the finding of an article does seem a little different to them..(the old finders keepers ) saying in the UK... The BBC done a program years ago....and many have been done since, on candid camera of people pretending to drop wallets etc. Seems that who it belong to had a great bearing on what they did----if you go into a phone box and there is money in the return slot, would you feed it back into the box as it belongs (or did) to the government.....83% no. . But back to the lady....its really blatant isn't it, be an interesting one to follow......
  8. Is that what they do in the rest of the normal world, mediately return the 30,000 + Baht phone, as soon as they find it. Your right about 1 thing Andrew----if you really believe that, where ever it is you reside on this globe......your certainly not living in the normal world............
  9. Oh its a secret......... Don't worry bamukloy.......I wont tell anyone. .....but if I do I'll kill them after..........
  10. Not mainly --100% ..for tax......I am just making the point that it really doesn't matter where your office is if you are a global firm as you can see with America's 700 top companies. But you seem to think we will have all sorts of passport problems where they don't.
  11. I think that most posters on TV are happy to see that law enforced, and there was certainly plenty of time and open warnings given for over a year before it took place. May I have a link to the sources please------and not just someone writing on a wall. Because most of the 19 years of living here I have listen to stories very much like yours......
  12. Really it is a non story --& means nothing. Facebook Google Starbucks Microsoft Amazon And 700 other of the largest USA companies that have their head office--(not a sub office) in Ireland --I guess that means they don't trade so much outside of there.......
  13. Gosh I just wish I had some of this inside information that some posters like bamukloy have. I could make such great decisions. Then I could be one of those guys that "wake up" instead of being one of those guys that has done OK for the last 19 years here . I know maybe he will post us a link....or a date line for when the army will make all these changes that they have never even talked about--...... if its not available---maybe just the name of the bar he got it from, I 'll drop in for a listen between Changs ....................
  14. I don't know how much cheaper you can get than Zero Words-Of Wisdom. The money was sitting there anyway. Yer its a rubbish interest rate I know---he (manager) does include the amount in immigration letter if requested...(I haven't) . At my age (although insured) I like to have just a certain amount of money accessible....which usually means for that lump I take a shit rate.....but a bit more than UK or USA I think,,,,,not looked for a while. . Still got my gold....that some financial wizard advised me to buy--- if it goes up another 20K a baht....I'll get my money back after waiting a few years----- I'll let every one know when I am about to sell----the rate always seems to go through the roof 2 days after I sell or do a forigen money exchange .
  15. Do you want a credit card so you can lend money---or do you want a credit card to use for just convenience ? I wanted the latter----so I could book airlines/Hotels/car rentals etc.....I don't use it for much else.....shopping etc is cash for me. So I got Master card & Visa card , they required I open a 2nd account and deposit 100K to cover both of them---at the usual rubbish interest rate----I was then asked how I would like to pay it back from that account---so much a month etc ? I opted for 100% immediate payment from that account. The cost has been nothing--- I have made many purchases but 2 large ones at different times at 2 different BKK hospitals 87,000 ---78K at Pattaya hospital..... payment went through, but they txt me immediately in English asking if everything was OK. Oh BKK Bank.......I wish I had 10 mil in my savings....but sadly no.....
